      Hi, we moved in to an older home built in 1950, for the last 3 years this flower comes up and I would like to know what it is, it looks like some kind of lily but I’m not sure. Every year it starts out looking like a large clump of thick bladed grass, then that all dies back to the ground in late July, early August. The plant looks like it died, then about a week later it shoots up four to five strong spikes with clusters of buds just at the top. It is pink with some blue tones to it and smells like Lilacs. Any Ideas as to what it is? Michele

      I found out via another website that this plant is called a Resurrection Lily, Magic Lily, Naked Lady, or Surprise Lily. and it’s not a lily at all it is part of the Amiryllis Family. 😀

      Did you mean “Amaryllis“? Accourding to some authors, they are included in the Liliaceae. But some considere them more advanced in evolution… 😕

      amarilis is in liliaceae, it is a group of liliaceae (called Hippeastrum sp)
      may be Hippeastrum aulicum

      Its not an amaryllis its call mystery lily, the plant will come up nice and green early and then die down to the ground, here in central wisconsin the flower comes up in august.
